Apple Meat Loaf: Heavenly Smell

Grandma's Apple Meat Loaf Posted by Hello

This is a new meat loaf recipe my mother tried last week for the J.O.Y. Club at church. It was delicious and smelled heavenly. Of course the women of the J.O.Y. Club are the best cooks in the church and this is the absolute best luncheon to attend. The plate was empty by the end of the day.
Apple Meat Loaf:
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons butter
2½ pounds ground beef
1½ cups fresh bread crumbs
2 cups finely chopped peeled and cored apples
3 eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
½ teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons salt
¼ teaspoon allspice
1 tablespoon prepared mustard or ¼ teaspoon dry mustard
¼ cup ketchup

Saute onion in butter until soft. In a large bowl, combine onion, beef bread crumbs, apples, eggs, parsley, pepper, salt, allspice, mustard, and ketchup. Form into loaf and place in a 10" x 14" baking pan or pack into a large greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 1 hour. Remove from oven and let sit for 15 minutes before serving. Serves 8 - 10.
